The most exclusive hotel in the Garden State has been revealed by one publication and there is good news and bad news.

The bad news is the hotel is not in Monmouth County, and it's not in Ocean County. The good news is that you only have to travel a couple of counties to get there. New Jersey's most exclusive hotel is in Somerset County.

According to Love Exploring, that hotel is the Bernards Inn in Bernardsville. And it'd just a hop, skip and a jump from our area. The Bernards Inn is 45 miles from Freehold and about an hour's drive.

The publication lists some of the great amenities at the Bernards Inn, like the chance to take a champagne sunset helicopter tour to a very romantic picnic. The venue also is a very popular wedding spot.

So, you might want to add the Bernards Inn to the list of places you want to check out in the Garden State. Of course, we all know if you want to stay a little closer to home, there's always the Molly Pitcher Inn, The Asbury, The Ocean Place Resort and Spa or The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel, just to name a few. We've heard they're pretty awesome too.
